Making a Realistic Spaceship using Photoshop
Under Photo Effect, Photoshop Tutorial
Simple mechanical pieces can be used to form a special spaceship. Based on this idea, you can create anything beyond your imagination. This will show you how to combine the mechanical parts and model it.
The aim of this tutorial is to create a manipulation photo, with a guy standing above the clouds in the sky watching and considering about an optical illusion. To realize this effect, you need to create a surreal sky scene, blend light effects and create realistic looking lens flare. Good luck and have a try!
Creating a realistic water surface in Photoshop is quite a challenge because it is the distorted reflection of the surroundings that makes the water look liquid. The displace filter is an excellent tool for making this distortion. Now it really looks like water. Notice that the layer mask is also distorted because it is linked to the layer. This causes the reflectivity to change with the angle of the surface.
In this tutorial, it will show you how to take a stone statue and alter it to look life-like. When it looks just right, flatten the image (save the layered file first in case you want to go back to it) and do a levels adjustment and a final photo filter to warm the whole image and tie the tones together.
In this tutorial, it will show you how to create taking photos with long exposures. It would be a nice idea to do that in Photoshop. If the background is too dark the blend mode won’t work. You’ll probably have to use another one with a outer glow.
